St John Devoré Snakeskin Shell


A rather special little slip of a top in viscose (70%) silk (30%) velvet with burnout in a pattern reminiscent of snakeskin. The colors are snakey too, pythony to be exact, a few shades of green. It fastens with a concealed zipper in back, and has a high gathered turtleneck. Now you're going to ask me to show you the label--and I can't. I cut it out! What can I say? It was scratchy. But it is St John main line! From the 1990s. Price reflects the lack of proof. 

Measurements: bust 38",  length 23", shoulder 13", hem circumference 40"

STORY: I used to wear it and now I don't. Sorry that's all the story there is.
